- products with a lot of stock
- some products you'll select with their id, title, ...
Link this sub catalogue to the channel of your choice
When adding a channel in your account, select in the dropdown menu from the channel of your choice the Segment you want to launch at first.
This dropdown menu is only displayed for catalogue for which you have created a Segment.
Keep in mind that you can use this same Segment for each new channel you want to set up.
Set up the channel
Follow usual set up steps.
Increase products online
Once your products'll be online and would have gathered the expected sales volume, you'll then be able to change or delete the Segment to display all or part of your catalogue.
Keep in mind, that you'll have to adjust your settings, so that values from products that weren't included in the Segment, will match your expectations and channel's expectations.
At the channel level, for the channel you choose, at the "Catalogues" step, use dropdown menu to change the Segment or to switch from a Segment to all of your products.
